Race War or Race Peace?

And hath made of one blood all nations of men (Acts 17:26). Tensions were high one Saturday in April 2021 when Democrat representative Maxine Waters spoke in Brooklyn Center, the Minneapolis suburb where Daunte Wright, a 20-year-old black man, was shot and killed by police. Waters said, “We’ve got to stay on the street and […]

Keeping Your Ethical Edge Sharp

Our world has a way of dulling what needs to be razor sharp—our ethical edge. God has called His people to holiness and sanctification. Writing to Christians scattered in Asia Minor, Peter says, “As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance: But as he which hath called you is […]

The Consuming Presence

“… that the nations may tremble at thy presence!” —Isaiah 64:2 The Second Article of the 1973 Humanist Manifesto revealed its position on the Christian faith with unabashed clarity: “Promises of immortal salvation or fear of eternal damnation are both illusory and harmful. They distract humans from present concerns, from self-actualization, and from rectifying social […]

Jesus’ Instruction for the End-Time Church

“Antipas … who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth” (Rev. 2:13). Who could have predicted on January 1, 2020, that a tiny virus invisible to the human eye would change life for nearly every human on planet Earth and kill more than a million people? The virus was hard to contain and created confusion […]

A Year of Conflict

On January 1, 2020 most people were optimistic. People had been making plans for the future. Some of the plans were short-term and involved spring and summer activities. Others were looking to marriage and pursuing a career. COVID-19, however, dashed all those plans. It added fear and dread. Would our country survive the spring? People […]

A Call to Self-Examination

“Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith” (2 Cor. 13:5). The American church is in desperate need of revival. As we approach the November 2020 presidential election, do we meet the conditions outlined in 2 Chronicles 7:14? Notice, I wrote, “the American church.” Revival is not for left-wing protesters, abortion doctors, and progressive candidates. […]

“America, You Are Too Young to Die”

There are some tragedies that have a way of lodging in our hearts, producing hidden images that often surface in times of crises. Forty years ago, I pastored a church in rural Tennessee. One rainy night, a distressed grandmother called and said that her granddaughter, fifteen years of age, had been killed in an auto […]

’Til It’s Safe: America’s New Formula for National Destruction

The coronavirus pandemic has brought to the surface a deep-seated national dread. It can be stated in three simple words: “’Til It’s Safe.” The lockdowns will continue, constitutional freedoms will be stepped on “ ‘til it’s safe” to get back to living life. Forget the fact that millions are out of work and businesses are […]

The Other Side of Wuhan

“… these shall come from far … and these from the land of Sinim” (Isa. 49:12). Several people have asked me, “Has God abandoned China?” This short piece is a partial answer to that question. In these days of the COVID-19 pandemic, few realize that China has become a proving ground for the amazing vitality […]

Is It a “Chinese Virus”?

A Primer for Surviving a National Emergency The arrival of the new communist regime in 1949 brought fear to the hearts of many Chinese. The people of Shandong Province in Eastern China had seen a mighty revival that touched the lives of millions, a revival labeled as “the greatest Christian revival in history” (Paul Hattaway, […]

Is the Coronavirus Pandemic Judgment from God?

The coronavirus, known as COVID-19, is now a worldwide problem. It is really a pandemic. It has spread very quickly to so many nations. So, is the coronavirus pandemic judgment from God? There is no doubt that there is a definite connection between sin—that is, disobedience to God—and suffering. Adam and Eve sinned and as […]

Vitamin D to Reduce Coronavirus Infection Risk?

As we race to develop effective treatments and a vaccine against COVID-19, people are looking to reduce their risk of getting sick. One thing that might help is as obvious as the sun in the sky and as close as our medicine cabinet—Vitamin D. Former CDC chief, Dr. Tom Frieden, believes that coronavirus infection risk […]

A Stanford Nobel Laureate Predicts COVID-19 Will Result in Fewer Deaths Than Anticipated

Most of the predictions regarding the outcome of the coronavirus pandemic are, to put it mildly, quite gloomy. We hear dire predictions such as “One Hundred Fifty Million Could Die!” “Major Disruptions in Services Staring America in the Face!” “Attempts to Create a COVID-19 Vaccine Fails Again!” However, Michael Levitt, a Nobel laureate and Stanford […]

Is the Problem Just Politics or Is It Something Deeper?

One of the worst things that anyone can do is to deny the seriousness of a problem and therefore to miscalculate the way to fix it. Would you think much of a surgeon who wants to take care of a cancerous tumor with a prescription of two aspirins? There is a cadre of politicians who […]

Conservative Religious Beliefs Keep People Unafraid of COVID-19

One of the biggest debates on social media among Christians has been over the appropriate level of concern for a significant, long-term disruption of daily activities, and church attendance, because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Why do some people keep gathering at churches even in the face of the coronavirus, and others don’t? Studies show fears […]

In The Shadow of the Monster Created By The Deep State

This is a short rundown and summary of what is going on in the deep state. You might say we are living in the shadow of the monster created by the deep state. I think the alarmism and fearmongering is but a tip of the iceberg. Let’s look at the U.N. A United Nations expert […]

“We Shall Overcome”

I know that there are a lot of people who are uneasy, some definitely concerned, and many downright depressed. The coronavirus, or COVID-19, has made a sweeping tour of Planet Earth in just over three months. The media has really hit the “freak-out” button and is causing a societal meltdown. Celebrity physician Dr. Drew Pinsky […]

Report Says China Responds to Virus-Investigation Demand by Demolishing Point of Origin

Researchers trying to investigate the origin of the present coronavirus epidemic have sought to study the site in Wuhan, China, for the purpose of halting future epidemics. China, however, has made that impossible. They have demolished what is claimed to be ground zero for the deadly disease. Months after being shuttered following an outbreak of […]
